Directions

  1. In the top of a double boiler, heat chocolate, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool to lukewarm. In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let set 5 minutes. Place the bowl over hot water in the pan and stir until gelatin dissolves; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in rum, egg yolks and dissolved gelatin. Beat in the melted chocolate. Fold in whipped cream.
  3. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the batter, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain. Pour mousse into pie crust. Refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving.

Good basic recipe, but cooked the cream; cream cheese, sugar and egg yolks over boiling water. Stirred in the chocolate; plus I added 1/2 cup chocolate hazelnut spread.

Oh, I would give this recipe a four. I wasn't quite CRAZY about it, it's not as firm as a cheesecake but hey, it's a mousse. But I do like it and my son REALLY likes it and wants me to make it again! Hey, any recipe that a picky 12 year old likes...go full force! he he!
